But we want to keep the chickens out of the garden.
And we want them to be able to get around the barnyard and up the access drive to eat the grasshoppers.
So here is the new fence idea, which seems to be working so far.
|Wire panels hung on hooks that are welded to the drill pipe fence.|
(now if the idiots who installed the fencing had listened, the wire fence would be pig wire, not cattle wire!)
|You could do this with wood fencing, too. 4" x 4" wooden posts would be strong enough to hold up the wire fencing, especially if you put cement in the hole (which the idiots 'forgot' to do on 1/3 of the posts, sheesh!)|
|The crazy way we have to have the hoses set up so we can water in the desert!|
All in all the idea has worked very well so far. Vet2Be has been adding some wire fencing to the bottom of the panels to keep the chickens out. We don't want to go out and buy all new panels with 4" x4" holes (pig panel) right now.
